Yet more drugs raids
Is Majorca the drugs capital of Spain? This is an impression one forms, so many are the reports of swoops, raids and arrests. Wednesday's edition reported on another National Police score to go along with all the others in recent weeks. Kilos of cocaine were found, the Son Banya shanty town was raided, as it always is, given that it is the epicentre of the island's drugs trade, and four people were arrested. Yesterday, it was the turn of the Guardia Civil. An operation simultaneously carried out in parts of the mainland netted over forty arrests in Majorca and one hundred in all. Massive amounts of coke plus speed, ecstasy, heroin and dope were seized. And yes, Son Banya was one of the areas raided.
